The Twentieth Century Through American Jewish Eyes: A History of the American Jewish Year Book (1899-1999)

By Jonathan D. Sarna, Jonathan J. Golden

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 2000

The American Jewish Year Book was established in 1899-1900. The publishers of the Year Book understood that the American Jewish community was the future center of world Jewry and aimed to prepare American Jewry to assume this role. The publishers blended American patriotism with concern for the welfare of Jews abroad. The Year book established two traditions: (1) it provided American Jews with a reliable Jewish calendar and (2) it drew upon the 19th century tradition of the literary yearbook which featured articles of communal and scholarly concern.
